    To be fair he was pretty putrid in the JLT and round 1. Has improved significantly each week though.

    He did sign a two year extension last season, however, if they want to keep the likes of Hopper and Kelly (and they've just resigned Shiel) they may look to free up some cap space and let go of a player they are well stocked. Just a thought.

    Brad Hill was still contracted and we got him for a second rounder.

    True - but GWS are ******s to deal with and Hawthorn were chucking everyone out the door at bargain basement prices.

    edit: W*nk*r is on the swear list?? Pretty tame IMO. :huh:

    I want Jack Martin.
    Rory Lobb hopefully has an 'ok' year and we can launch at him.

    I back our recruitment department. If freo can get WA players in reasonable price no problem , if not draft is the way to go . Sometime high price recruit can destabilise the squad .

    He's an improvement on Mayne and that's all we asked. Happy with that.

    Ah bugger.
    It felt like he was being groomed!

    There'll be some blokes for sure.
    We'll need to keep serious coin for Fyfe, so another big recruit is possibly out of the question.

    Take it to the trade thread people!


    So that Kersten hey? I think he just needed some confidence to get playing the way he is now.
    I was sitting right behind where his kickout was, and you could see his confidence drop before he kicked it - and he completely fudged it.

    The synergy was noticeable with Cam. They were feeding off each other. He really looks like he is enjoying his footy with us. He will only get better as he gels with the boys. The best part about getting Kersten and the other boys is that the MCG was a second home to them. Kersten, B.Hill and Hamling have probably played there more in one season than our combined squad in their entire careers.

    Bodes well for us to have big game players as we restump, rewire and so forth.

    The big handball was ok. But he did a couple of excellent hand passes to advantage earlier in the game that lead to goals. So well weighted that the other player didn't have to break stride. Annoys me when others miss by hand or make their team mate stop in their tracks

    Kersten is a bloody good kick for goal.No room for nerves in his routine.Dunno what his efficiency rate for set shots is but I'll bet it's high.

    He would have a great impact for us. I know nothing about him, but Cameron Loesch is a tall forward/ruck coming out of contract, from WA.

    I think Kram was pointing out how silly it is that ****** is on the swear filter but poof isn't.

    A poof, to me, is also something you put your feet on.
    Like an oversized stool.

    Now back to Kersten.
    Who'll go to him/be beaten by him?

    Oversized stool sounds real shitty to me.
